I have three 9 year old boys in my house. We are eating whatever I find in the freezer since I can't get rid of the two that aren't mine. Hubs is on the golf course in 100 degree heat so there's no relief (or trip to the store) in sight.

I just fed them the last of the retried beans and corn tortillas. They'll be chewing on my ankle next.

I've got to get a new plan for boys that are rapidly getting bigger than me.


Lol! I got a kick out of your post, prickly. My mom always fed us pancakes. My brothers would eat over 10 of them. One is 6'6", the other is 6'2. We're in our 50's now, but that brought back some good memories. We all loved split pea soup with ham or sausage too. She made huge pots of pea soup. That's a love or hate thing though.

DP smoked a chicken today, just the way I like it. No sauce. Just mesquite chips and coal.

We had that with Greek salad and Glutino parmesan garlic bagel chips. WalMart is carrying them! Stonyfield Chocolate ice cream for desert.

Yesterday he smoked spare ribs I'd marinated overnight in papaya, cinnamon and brown sugar, then gave him a mop sauce of organic apple cider vinegar, minced jalopeno pepper, parprika and water, reduced. I had roasted root vegetable salad, he had supermarket potato salad. The ribs were fabulous! :)

Grilled a trout and some corn on the cob tonight. For some really stupid reason I can't fathom I touched the foil and have a rather large and painful blister right on the end of my right index finger. <_<

Empanadas, empanadas, empanadas!

Wow, they were delicious! My husband ate 5, I had 3 and my son 10 (his were smaller). I used a dough from my recipe "Gluten free apple empanadas". I didn't put sugar in it. I made meat filling (beef, onion, garlic, cumin, oregano, 3 mashed potatoes, red paprika, and salt) and for my son, a vegetarian version (1 small can of vegetarian beans- mashed, 3 mashed potatoes, cumin, oregano, 3 Tbsp. peas from can and 2 Tbsp. of shredded Monterey jack cheese).

Tonight was homemade chick salad with tomato aspic and deviled eggs on a bed of lettuce. It was so suitable for a hot day in May.

Chopped off a piece of right (dominant) thumb yesterday on my mandoline so am not cooking. DANG IT! Amazing how much we take our thumbs for granted. Makes things tricky (like this typing which is taking ages).


Oooh, I did that on my middle finger!!!! The dude at urgent care wanted to put a stitch through my nail. I advised him to use glue if he wanted to live.

Hubs threw out the mandolin and I refuse to buy another one.

Hope you feel better soon. Yes, it is awkward. I was so happy when mine healed to a certain point.

DP loves nothing better than smoking, watching sports and drinking beer. We live in the deep south so he gets a bit warped in the summer, the sunshine adds too much heat to the smoker! I really need to buy an umbrellla stand and a SUVP umbrella or some shade cloth for him. That whole chicken was on sale for a little over $6. I had it every day for lunch this week. (Greek salad, rice mac & cheese and smoked chicken, chef salad, smoked chicken on bagel chips and fruit salad. There's still enough left for pizza tomorrow (with pesto) and I'll probably be able to teach the dog a few more tricks with it. (Because it's smoked, I'm okay with using it more than 3-4 days.) He smokes whatever pork is on sale, and what's left over is always good for soup or etc. And yes, our neighbors are torturted too. I buy him some gluten-free beer occasionally for his grill adventures. I used to have to watch him like a halk, it was just nature for him to pour beer on the hunk of meat. He's been a Dennis the Menace, but he's finally got it down.

Way to go on reaseasoning the smoker. He actually bought a new one, but it was an end of season sale at a big hardware chain and got it for $40.

We're smoking duck this weekend. A Kentucky ducky Derby weekend, he says. I got him some Mexican beer to, because it's Cinco de Mayo. Duck is a little more involved, but it is out of this work and Duck Soup is over the top!
